The Non-Pimple Speaks

Colorado's most famous property law teacher and Tuesday Rocky Mountain News columnist Paul Campos has today a shaggy dog complaint about Bill Kristol. Campos after several pointless paragraphs regarding Campos' neighbor in the pornography business, calls Kristol a war monger, no, worse--a person who loves war like HH loved Lolita. Campos offers not the slightest bit of evidence of support for this attack, but Campos rarely has any evidence to support his groundless attacks on his betters.

What Campos fails, apparently, even to be able to see is that neither Bill Kristol, nor we, are out looking for enemies to "create" They exist already and are called Islamic Extremists et al. and most assuredly they are waging war against us; and in the case of Iran, whom we have never fought, they have been doing so since 1979, when they invaded our Embassy in Tehran and took our fellow citizens hostage. Lately they have been providing ever more sophisticated arms to the Muslim Extremists we are fighting against in Iraq.

Kristol wants us to defend ourselves and fight back. Campos says, about that rational desire, that the ruling passion of Kristol's life is to involve the United States in as many wars as possible, with as many enemies as he can find or create.

Then Campos calls Kristol a coward and a chicken hawk and lower than the neighbor pornographer. Wow. What a scrapper he is, on paper.

Campos is a fool and a decidedly third tier pundit who has to be ever more shrill, yet banal at the same time, to disparage others to make his pitiful, bitter self feel a little better. Or at least it seems that way to me. But then I don't like Paul Campos and I do like Bill Kristol.


"There's been a certain amount of pop sociology in America ... that the Shia can't get along with the Sunni and the Shia in Iraq just want to establish some kind of Islamic fundamentalist regime. There's almost no evidence of that at all. Iraq's always been very secular."

Bill Kristol, 2003
More proof of Kristol's war loving, chichen hawk, cowardly promotion of killing. Thanks for the helpful quote.
Roger, do you know how I can get in touch with Kristol? I see where he's just offered 2-1 that the republicans will capture the White House in 08. (4-1 if the nominee is not Hillary.)


Really, no matter what your politics, this is the overlay of all time. I want in.
No idea how to contact Bill Kristol. It's not like we Republicans are in a club here with membership rolls and secret handshakes. I read Kristol's review of the latest so called debate. He might be a bit too happy with the poor showings there. It's not like anyone else is watching them. Still, I recall a few months when, just a few years ago, John Kerry was flat out and Dean was a shoe in; so it could be you're wrong here. I'm mentally prepared for Hillary as President so I can be pleasantly surprised.
There's no question that a Republican could capture the White House in 08, and I will never underestimate the ability of the Democratic party to self destruct. But Kristol isn't just saying that he thinks a Republican will win, he's saying its 2-1 that they will win. (4-1 if the nominee is not Hillary.)

Thats just inane. I have to assume that all of his "expert" opinions are subject to bias. I can guarantee you that Kristol would never lay any of his own money at those odds.
